Endless Sewer are Liz Burrito, Farsh Farrokhnia and Travis Smith, an Austin garage rock trio. They are celebrating the cassette release of their self-titled album out on Digital Hotdogs.
Hobo filmmaker/phototramp Bill Daniel is back on the road with a pop-up photo show, TRI-X-NOISE, comprised of 30 years of 35mm photographs beginning with the early 80s punk scene in Texas, featuring all of your favorite old school punk bands. Daniel has continued to document various subcultures using the same camera/lens/flash and Kodak Tri-X film for over 30 years. This exhibit, all non-digital darkroom prints, charts a path starting with punk shows in Texas and crawls through various subcultures from the 90s graffiti scene in San Francisco, freight-hopping scenarios, art openings in Los Angeles, house shows in Louisiana, generator shows on the Monongahela River, etc… all seen through Daniel’s unique, spelunker flash-lit vision.
This tour also celebrates the launch of the book TRI-X-NOISE. These shows are all one-night pop-up site-specific events, with a free-standing “gallery” — a free-standing wall that stands in the middle of a space, with photos on both sides. I bring the lighting, and a sound system. It sets up in all kinds of places— music venues, warehouses, and occasionally galleries.
Kuniklo is an art collective that resides in Puerto Rico, Texas and California, working in a wide range of genres & disciplines. Their practice centers around themes of nature, queer sexuality, Puerto Rican culture and investigations into literary/philosophical theory.

A little bit about the Quick Draw Photo Booth:
It’s real photos. Real drawings. Real fast. The routine is familiar to a traditional photo booth: Sit. Pose. PHOTOS! But the photographer is ALIVE: Prompting your poses, telling stories, jokes, and QUICKLY “developing” photos into hand-made drawings.
There’s karaoke & other fun things in this booth!
In the time it takes to sing through the chorus of your favorite song, your drawings will be complete.
